Some people, or at the very least my sister, might call this an obsession, but “fondness” is what I’m calling it.
I’ve a new fondness for hand quilting!
I pulled another UFO (un-finished object) out of my WIP (works in progress) closet.
This is the start of an Arkansas Traveler quilt.
I struggled to add the borders to these diamonds using a tutorial and decided to use a paper piecing template going forward. So this block will be a pillow cover. A hand quilted pillow cover.
I started work on it this weekend during a trip to IA to visit my quilter/blogger friend, Greta of Material Detachment. She cut the diamonds for me not quite 3 years ago.
I made lots of progress and am completely pleased w/how it’s s turning out!
I wasn’t planning on doing this much quilting but all this fabulous texture has changed my mind!
I’ll be adding more quilting to the diamonds using a red thread.
Not so long ago I labled those who hand quilted as “crazy”. But now I see what all the hype is about!
I want to hand quilt ALL the things!
Okay, I’m starting to sound obsessed so I’ll leave it at that.
Thanks for visiting.

It’s love so undeniable, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable, I can hardly think
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love
You’re a Good, Good Father.
